Almost every Edmunds reviewer loved the versatility provided by the Volt's unique powertrain setup that allows the vehicle to travel around 30 miles in pure electric drive, after which the gas engine activates to recharge the vehicle's battery, engaging to the drivetrain only when extra pickup is demanded. For many reviewers, this meant that they often used no gas at all when making short trips around town or to work. In addition to the Volt's excellent fuel economy, many reviewers said the torque of the all-electric drivetrain made the hybrid fun to drive.
